Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America in support of Gina Ortiz-Jones’ (D. TX-23) campaign:
Another one bites the dust.
This week, GOP Representative Mac Thornberry announced he will not seek re-election in 2020, making him the sixth Republican member of Congress to declare retirement in recent weeks.
Republicans are dropping like flies in Texas because they see what’s happening: their state is no longer a GOP stronghold. We can flip Texas blue in 2020, and that includes the 23rd district where DFA-endorsed progressive Democrat Gina Ortiz-Jones is fighting to make a comeback.
In 2018, Gina narrowly lost to Republican incumbent Will Hurd (who also announced he’s not seeking re-election). She’s seeing a groundswell of grassroots support: last quarter, she raised a massive $1 million. If she’s going to succeed in flipping this seat, we’ve got to keep that momentum up.
While we work to flip the Senate and White House in 2020, we can’t forget to protect — and expand — our Democratic majority in the House. Especially in states like Texas that are becoming more blue by the day.
And it’s critical we continue to send more progressive leaders like Gina — a woman of color, a veteran, a member of the LGBTQ community, and a first-generation American — to Washington.
Thanks for helping us flip TX-23 blue,
Charles Chamberlain, Chair
